good faith. >> it's not acceptable to me and i don't think it's accept to believe you for a handful of republicans in congress to hold middle class tax cuts hostage because they don't want tax rates on upper income folks to go up. >> let's not kid ourselves. i'm willing to move forward in good faith. our original framework still stands. >> andrea: the republican leader mitch mcconnell said he burst in laughter when tim geithner outlined the president's plan. what's next? rush limbaugh and charles krauthammer want republicans to walk away and let obama own the mess. >> the best thing to do is back out of this and let obama and democrats have it and do what you want to do. that will happen anyway. i don't know about you, i don't want my fingerprints on this. >> this is almost unheard of. what do they expect?
they think the republicans will cave on everything. i think republicans should walk away. >> eric: so on tuesday, i remember -- >> andrea: i floated the idea and i said why can't republicans vote present? let obama have his bill or not show up. a lot of members wouldn't show. they would book dentist appointment or pull a hamstring and let him get his way and own the fiscal cliff debacle. >> eric: it's not a bad call. this could be terrible for the economy and hurt jobs and businesses. but honestly, if you are ready, america, if you are ready, hold your nose, take a deep breath and take the medicine. it will fix the problem and the deficit problem as long as everything in the fiscal cliff happens. as long as sequestration happens it will hurt defense. tax rate goes up. eventually you will get someone out, to get that president out and get president who wants lower tax rates and congress that wants the lower tax rate and maybe a
senate. it would hurt dramatically. best time to do it is now. >> andrea: there are two schools of thought here. one if you follow twitter or watch republicans who are on the pundit circle, they say let them go off cliff and let obama own that. there is another one that says just let him have what he wants and then when the economy nose dives he will have to own it. republicans are going to get blamed anyway. do you feel strong about either one of those? >> dana: not necessarily. i do think i see in "washington post," headline, obama offers plan for cliff. plan to be in quotes. the thing that amazes me and the media lets it happen. for eight years or longer now. i had to defend how many times people said on the left, including president obama when he was running for president the first time, the bush tax cuts only help the rich. they were only for the rich. now all of a sudden we're supposed to believe that he understands that they are
actually going to hurt the middle class and the lower income people? because president bush cut taxes for everybody. finally now, i guess, history will get it right. that is actually what happened. president obama was on the wrong side of it then. definitely headed -- leading the country in a bad direction now. he had every reason to try to figure out a way to help the republicans, help get them to a deal so everyone could not have this anxiety leading up to the fiscal cliff. he is exacerbated the anxiety with the ridiculous plan. mitch mcconnell does not show emotion about anything ever. he has the best poker face. geithner's proposal must have been absurd that he laughed out loud would have been fan tast tic to see. >> andrea: there is a second stimulus. all spending and taxing. how would you feel if the republicans walked away? something you celebrate? >> bob: if they walked away permanently celebrate it particularly. look, the republicans, the question i've got here is why are you putting at risk all
the things you talk about? the recession and the dire things, for the sake of people at the top 2%. i don't understand that. >> eric: you are not being fair. >> bob: what do you mean? >> eric: that there will be a recession if they don't allow tax rates up on the top 2%. >> no. >> if everybody got tax increase and everything expired. you said we are going to the recession. that is probably true. but, if you are willing to let that happen for sake of the top 2%, put tax on them. get the other things we want. >> why do they think we wouldn't go in a recession if they make a bad policy of allowing rates to go up? speaker bainer was willing to
get more revenue. >> bob: 2% of the -- >> dana: hold on. >> andrea: one credit rating agency said if the democrats get their way, which is not fixing the problem, we will be downgraded again. should the republicans let president obama own that? >> brian: unbelievably disappointed. you did not characterize, you must be on some level, bob, disappoint. the president is doing what he did for the four years. his way or the highway. this is the quote from the "washington post." offer lacked any concession for republicans at the core issue of where to set the tax rate. i thought this is going to be a debate between 35-3%. and as deal gets done, roll up sleeves. this offer is insulting. i am not going to deal with you.

can't pay back the student loans. when it's all to this point and so bad, the government usually will come in and bail everybody out. so then you have no incentive to pay it anyway. >> eric: they said the pel program will go i away or be trashed. we found out today the pel program, obama is bringing it back. 18 semesters now down to 12. he is cutting the program. >> andrea: are you surprised? >> eric: no. the other thing about the student debacle is the universities are taking advantage. we have not learned anything from fre freddie and fannie but the universities have. if they have a government to say we'll make the cheap credit readily available you don't to pay back, what are they doing? they will hike up our tuition every year.
the history of bubbles is an entry call course, i believe, but they are spending it on climbing walls, latte bars. expensive salaries for the liberal professors to jam this down their throat. they are taking advantage of the parents and students which bring us to a question, should every kid be going to college or is it a stick up for parents now? >> eric: this is a good question. glad you said that. pull the full screen. spokesperson for arnie duncan said this. almost unbelievable. to make student loans available to as many people as possible. this sounds like what barney frank said in 2003, 2004, 2005. >> bob: the alarmists around the table are nervous here. only 11% of the student loans are over 90 days late. >> eric: higher than any other time. >> bob: in the middle of a recession. coming off a recession rather.
